Description

Icon of Christ Pantocrator on naturally aged wood

The icon of Christ Pantocrator is placed on naturally aged wood from a cell at Mount Athos and is one of the most common religious images of Orthodox Christianity.

The icon, traditionally half-length depicts Christ with a somewhat melancholy and stern aspect, with the right hand raised in blessing while holding a closed gospel with his left one. In Christian iconography Christ Pantocrator is a specific depiction of Christ. Pantocrator or Pantokrator, usually translated as «Almighty» or «all-powerful».

Blessed Wood that came out of Heaven!

Mount Athos monks try to use everything around them for the glory of God. Even perishable materials that seemed to have no use in the past are now utilized by these monks. Old woods that are found after the renovation of cells are used thanks to their wisdom.

Woods that used to be supporting beams in the past are now used for the creation of these collectible icons. They continue to carry the Athonite blessing of Mount Athos since they come straight from this holy place.

The wood has been carefully cut and preserved by monks. On the back side of the icon two parallel cross – beams have been placed that support the image as well as leather hook in order for the hagiography to be hung on the wall. The icon bears the seal Mount Athos on its back side.
